24th May 2010 NEW FILM FOR WYENOT - ROSS-ON-WYE: ..............................

As readers of my blog will know, I have been working solidly for the past week to refresh the film on the front page of 'Wyenot'. I was never really happy with the original due to my narration. It has been a very enjoyable week filming the remake.

Although I have retained the after dark town scenes from the last version in this new release, the majority of the footage is new, shot during the sunny conditions of the past week. There is no actual video footage in this sequence. The whole thing is made up of thousands upon thousands of still images and the reason for this is picture quality. The video can be watched full screen in 1080p (albeit Windows Media compressed) high definition by changing from 360 to 1080p when watching.

Filming was not always an easy task. Each individual clip took between fifteen minutes and three hours to shoot and it is in fact, probably the most time consuming film I have ever put together. Several bits had to be re-filmed because friends thought it funny to run up to the camera and pull faces into the lens - thank you Dave - good job I know you :-)

Anyway. I hope you enjoy the new film for the front page of 'Wyenot', and above all, that it helps local businesses by attracting tourism!

There is just one other point. We don't sell hedgehogs on Ross Market, or purchase them to eat (somebody has already passed a comment in jest about this to me via email). The hedgehog is the mascot for Ross-on-Wye and the hog in the film, affectionately known as 'Hagrid' was not for sale. Maureen of the Furze Pig Hedgehog Rescue was at the market house promoting her cause and got him out to show the camera. On reflection, perhaps I should have included the 'Furze Pig Hedgehog Rescue' banner in the sequence but I did not realize I had not done so until it was too late.
